Osimhen could cost Man Utd, PSG more than €100m


Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain will be expected to pay a transfer fee of at least €100 million ($109m) if they are to win the race for Super Eagles and Napoli forward Victor Osimhen’s signature during the summer transfer window, a source with knowledge of the player’s valuation told ESPN.
Osimhen, 24, has become one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe this season by leading Napoli’s pursuit of a first Serie A title since 1990. The Nigeria international has scored 15 goals in 20 games in all competitions and, with 14 league goals, is two clear of Atalanta’s Ademola Lookman in the chase for the Capocannoniere award as Serie A’s top scorer.
With Erling Haaland (Manchester City), Darwin Nunez (Liverpool) and Robert Lewandowski (Barcelona) all moving to their present clubs last summer, Osimhen has emerged as the top option for the clubs looking to bolster their attacking options for next season.
A source has told ESPN that Napoli will not part with Osimhen for less than €100m, however, and that the prospect of United and PSG both making a serious effort to sign the player has raised the possibility of an even greater fee. Osimhen has two years left to run on his contract at Napoli, having arrived at the club in a €70m move from Lille in 2020.
